Hard to imagine dropping a habit, especially something that have been doing for years. I tried but usually failed. Diet change is easier said than done. A simple cup of coffee is not so simple to disregard. It takes more than courage. It takes a will of steel.
My father-in-law stopped smoking cigarettes (in his seventies) when my son was born. He didn’t want to hold the baby against his smokey shirt. It was love that made him stop.
Ultimately it comes down to what one wants and not what is important. How much does the shadow of consequence play in a decision? Is this another battle between good and evil?
People usually say, “You stopped cold turkey? Congratulations!” Maybe whatever it is, it’s a good thing.
